Stealing a ride in a vain endeavor to

an 'accident last night when he fell
from a string of Burlington freight

circumstance the lad escaped serious

Roessler was found in the Burlington
yards near the round house at Six
teenth street and First avenue at 11:20
last evening. He was scarcely able to
move and could not talk, so dumb was
he from the shock. I.ater, he inform
ed the attending physician that he was
with two companions, and 'hat when
he sustained his injuries they deserted
him. They had mistaken the Burling
ton train for a Rock Island train, and
w-hen they discovered their error, they
prepared to descend to terra flrraa. It
was then that Roessler fell to the
ground. A slight abrasion just below

MAYOR PUTS KIBOSH
ON THE GRIZZLY BEAR
That grizzly bear dance has been
put off the board walks of Rock Island
by Mayor H. M. Schriver. Mistake
not, tripper of the light fantastic, it is
not that bear dance so commonly con
nected with the bunny hug and the
turkey trot, but rather the real article.
Yesterday afternoon, a native of one
of the sunny lands of southern Europe
appeared In the office of the city exe
cutive and aske.d for permission to let
let his bears do that dance. The mayor,
without hesitation, declined permis
sion. The alien then wanted to put on
a fortune telling stunt, but that too,
went by default, when he learned that
an exorbitant license is demanded
round these parts.
Taunts of cowardice, heaped up on
top of an involuntary swim in Hock
river, led to Fred Russell's battle with
Frank Cramer last night and his sub
sequent arrest by Officer Gruby. This ton, returning on the I
morning, Russell was fined $5 and ,
costs in police court. He said that!
two weeks ago while at a Rock river
camp, Cramer shoved him into thej
water and that since that time, he had j
called him "yellow," and taunted him i
In other ways. Last night, the pair
came face to face. Russel invited
Cramer to try to prove that he, Kus-!
sen, was yellow ana Cramer ac

After the battle was settled, Russoll
